Rainwater tanks

Since February 2013, rainwater tanks have been optional for new homes built in the Scenic Rim and connected to a full town water supply. Scenic Rim properties connected to a mixed demand (trickle feed) supply or those which rely exclusively on rainwater or bulk water deliveries still require a rainwater tank.

Rainwater tanks can be used outdoors for gardens, filling pools, cleaning and car washing and you can connect you tank indoors for toilet flushing and cold water in a washing machine.
